Psalm 40:2 Second Part (thus Saith The Lord)

Psalm 40:2. 6-9. Second Part. C. M.
The incarnation and sacrifice of Christ.


Thus saith the Lord,
"Your work is vain,
"Give your burnt offerings o'er,
"In dying goats and bullocks slain
"My soul delights no more."

Then spake the Saviour, "Lo, I'm here,
"My God, to do thy will;
"'Whate'er thy sacred books declare,
"Thy servant shall fulfil.

"Thy law is ever in my sight,
"I keep it near my heart;
"Mine ears are open'd with delight
"To what thy lips impart."

And see the bless'd Redeemer comes,
Th' eternal Son appears,
And at th' appointed time assumes
The body God prepares.

Much he reveal'd his Father's grace,
And much his truth he shew'd,
And preach'd the way of righteousness,
Where great assemblies stood.

His Father's honour touch'd his heart,
He pity'd sinners' cries,
And, to fulfil a Saviour's part,
Was made a sacrifice,

PAUSE.

No blood of beasts on altars shed
Could wash the conscience clean,
But the rich sacrifice he paid
Atones for all our sin.

Then was the great salvation spread,
And Satan's kingdom shook;
Thus by the woman's promis'd seed
The serpent's head was broke.

Psalm 40:3. 5-10. L. M.Christ our sacrifice.The wonders, Lord, thy love has wrought,Exceed our praise, surmount our thought;Should I attempt the long detail,My speech would faint, my numbers fail.No blood of beasts on altars spilt,Can cleanse the souls of men from guilt,But thou hast set before our eyesAn all-sufficient sacrifice.Lo! thine eternal Son appears,To thy designs he bows his ears,Assumes a body, well prepar'd,And well performs a work so hard."Behold, I come," (the Saviour cries,With love and duty in his eyes)"I come to bear the heavy load"Of sins, and do thy will, my God. "'Tis written in thy great decree,"'Tis in

Psalm 40:1. 1 3 5 17. First Part. C. M.A song of deliverance from great distress.I waited patient for the Lord,He bow'd to hear my cry;He saw me resting on his word,And brought salvation nigh.He rais'd me from a horrid pitWhere mourning long I lay,And from my bonds releas'd my feet,Deep bonds of miry clay.Firm on a rock he made me stand,And taught my cheerful tongueTo praise the wonders of his hand,In a new thankful song.I'll spread his works of grace abroad;The saints with joy shall hear,And sinners learn to make my GodTheir only hope and fear.How many are thy thoughts
